Q and The Jet

The Jet and Q

They are no more than colleagues - Jason "The Jet" Terry and Quincy "Q" Douby.
But bonded by their basketball styles and slinky scoring frames, they have apparently formed a mutual admiration society. A few weeks back, Douby - the Kings second-year guard - discussed how he often watches tape of the Dallas guard as a how-to of sorts. He loves his game, and continues to work toward a day when his own resembles something close to it.
The feeling, as it turns out, is mutual.
"Iím a big fan of his," Terry said after the Kings' 101-99 loss to Dallas on Tuesday in Las Cruces, N.M. "I used to watch him play in college (at Rutgers), and I thought he was one of the best guards to come out (in the 2006 draft). He definitely was underrated where they drafted him at (No. 26), because he was one of the best point guards to come out.
"He has a deadly scoring touch, and he can play the point guard position.
He reminds me a lot of myself, a 1-2 combo guard really trying to find his way, but can play both positions."
Douby may have found his NBA big brother.
"I always make it a point when we play them or we pass them during the season to talk to him," Terry continued. "Being a nine-year veteran, I look at him as one of the younger players I can mentor and tutor along. I like his game, because he reminds me of me so much. He can direct the team and he can get his team in sets. He knows automatically at the point, when you get rid of the ball and it comes back to you, thatís when you turn into a point. Thatís something heíll learn as he gets more and more playing time."
Douby held his own when faced off against Terry, including a crossover in which Terry hand-checked him in the chest and Douby simply pulled up and nailed a mid-range jumper. He finished with seven points on 3 of 6 shooting, two assists and just one turnover in 17 minutes. Terry, of course, was the Kings killer with his ice-cold game-winning three with four seconds left that sparked his trademark celebration (arms outspread flying like a jet while running the floor).
